Arizona Public Media presents an extensive lineup of special programming during June in observance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month. From history to performing arts to independent film, PBS 6, WORLD, the UA Channel and ReadyTV offer viewers the opportunity to explore the observances of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, along with the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements.
Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
Over the course of the month of June, AZPM journalists will feature stories relating to LGBT Pride Month. Read about “LGBT Global Persecution Leads to Asylum Seekers in Southern AZ” by AZPM’s Maria Taracena, among others.
